Laïka – Day and night

The large window, wide open in the summer, allows people-watching on the Main. This cafe-bar-restaurant located in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal has been around for 14 years.

I love this place for many reasons. Here are a few.

Great spot to pick up a coffee before work. Then come back for a business lunch, to meet clients, or to work on your laptop all afternoon. The job done, we meet friends for the happy hour, stay for dinner and hesitate between two-salmon tartare, vegetarian polenta or beef stew, not to mention the chocolate fondant! Finally we linger on the sounds of the DJ du jour or a new book launch. One can easily spend the day — what I am saying — the week!

Like any trendy neighborhood bar, the place gathers many artists and intellectuals. All that in a cosy and friendly atmosphere. What could be better?

Oh yes! We also go on weekends for delicious brunches and chat with the friendly staff.
